Gimme 5 for Education

Our “Gimme 5 for Education” campaign to raise funds for the Cobb Schools Foundation will be ending tomorrow, Friday, April 13! Thank you to all the families and staff members who have already donated! We have raised about $1,200 for our school which means we will get 50% back to use at our school! Please help us meet our goal of $1,500 before tomorrow’s deadline. All checks can be made out to East Side and can go into the white safe or you can donate online at Gimme 5 Online Donation Page. Don’t forget it is a tax-deductible contribution! Again, thank you for giving East Side a high five to education and supporting our school continuously.

Talking

Hi Parents,

I am hoping for your help and support. We have been having a really hard time with talking in our classroom recently. Especially during transition times and when we are on the carpet. If you could please talk with your child about this and how to work on their talking I would really appreciate it. We are losing valuable academic time because we are talking and not listening. I appreciate your support in this! Spring has sprung and I know it’s getting harder and harder for the kiddos to have self control! Thanks !

Sincerely,

Ms.Mills

Typing Practice !!

Ms. Alter, our computer lab instructor, asks that students practice their typing skills.  Please practice typing for 10 minutes a day for 5 days a week.  For 2nd grade, students, she recommends either Dancemat, a free typing lesson tutorial.  Students need to learn how to use all 10 fingers when typing.  If students practice incorrectly, it only creates a bad habit.  To help against this bad habit,she suggests using a towel over your hands.  In the lab, students have skins over our keyboard when they practice typing.  Dancemat is self-explanatory and the program tells you what you need to do.  Once they have completed the lessons in this way to learn the keyboard and proper finger placement.  Then they should do the lessons again and this time focus on the speed recommended by the program. You can find Dancemat and other typing tutorials on our computer lab webpage at http://www.eastsidetechnology.org/?page_id=28.  Thanks for your help.
